This bg activity may have choked or some how got crossed in sending causing numerable crashes.
The RIFT client doesn't currently do any background downloading while you're playing, apart from receiving data from the server about nearby players and their actions. If you play during peak time on the weekend there will be many more players around you and the client will download much more data and will use more memory than if you play during off hours. This doesn't explain the crashes but it could be part of the cause.
